Camp at Grayland Beach State Park.  Just a short walk to the beach!  The first picture is taken from the dune trail out of our site.  30 seconds to the sand, and 2 minutes to the surf!
Having fun!
Drove the truck out and on the beach.  The girls had a lot of fun and we flew the kite for a bit too.
Today started off by getting camp all picked up to move along on our journey.  After we were all loaded up we hiked down to the beach from camp to collect some flat rocks for some craft projects.  Once we left camp we stopped at the Kalaloch Lodge Visitor Center and the girls turned in the Junior Ranger books and took their ranger oath.  It was pretty exciting for them.
After a short drive, we set up camp at Grayland Beach State Park.  Our campsite is in the sand dunes within walking distance to the beach.  After lunch we drove out on the beach to play for a bit.   We splashed in the surf and dug a play area for the princesses.  Selena even made Princess soup!  I taught Grandma how to fly our kite and we had a fun time with that.  Then we came back to our site and the girls played outside for a long time.  After our yummy dinner of spaghetti and red potatoes, the girls got to have a bath and shower in our little tub.  Once they put on their “sleep masks” they were out.  Tomorrow we are headed to Westport and back to the beach.
